The entire purpose is to delve into demons that use people with The Shining to get into our world. Word came on July 30 that Warner Bros. also wants to revisit the story with a “Shining” prequel, about what happened in the Overlook Hotel before Jack Torrance tried to kill his family there.
The source, who remained nameless because they were not supposed to talk about it, said the studio has asked writer-producer Laeta Kalogridis (“Shutter Island”) and her partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt to work on a new story for the prequel.
The two actors will portray Scott Thorson and Liberace in the upcoming biopic, Behind the Candelabra, which is being directed by Steven Soderbergh. The movie also stars Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd and Debbie Reynolds. More pictures and info about the movie can be seen here.
